Return to sailing!

Sailing Chandlery provide a quick service, at a good price, supplying a wide range of products, allowing me to replace my dinghy halyard which had recently snapped. I will return to Sailing Chandlery for future boat repairs.

Thank you Michael for your kind words. We hope your 8 plait pre stretched rope does the trick on your dinghy.

Found the staff at Sailing Chandlery most helpful to a no-yachtsman with flags to fly to cheer the day.

Thanks Trevor for your kind words, glad we could help you with this flag halyard rope.
